 Yeah, those are fair points.  
Yeah, it was driving me crazy too, so I put on the live feed from PGATour.com.  It's only one hole, but at least it's continuous coverage.
Personally, I don't think he's a legitimate single handicapper.  4 indexes do not shoot 87 in the Oregon Mid-Am.Yeah, I'm kind of over this whole thing too.  Not because it isn't an interesting experiment, but just because -- and I feel bad saying this -- I don't believe him.  Guys who really have a handicap under 5 don't routinely go out and balloon an 85 in tournament play.
To me, the most telling thing was when Tiger said that he didn't know where the bottom of the club is when he chips.  I mean, that to me right there says that it's 95% mental.  Tiger is roughly 40,000 light years ahead of me in talent, and even I know where the bottom of the club is with my short game.  I think he's just wandering in a desert wasteland of despair.
As a spectator, the 2008 Ryder Cup was unbelievable and unparalleled.  It really deserves to be in its own category.   I also went to Rory's US Open win at Congressional, which was a snooze-fest...which to me was an indication of just how dominant he was that week.   Some of the most fun I've ever had has been volunteering as a standard bearer at the Wyndham Championship.  If you ever get the opportunity, do it.  You get to spend an entire round walking inside the...
 I used a belly putter for about 18 months.  What I found was that my putting improved from 5 feet in...but absolutely tanked from 20 feet out.  I ended up pretty much just swapping out bad putts.  My putts-per-round didn't change at all.
Out of curiosity, what's your pre-shot routine like?  As a 12 Handicapper, you're clearly a fine golfer who can hold their own and is technically proficient.  Do you do the same thing every time, no matter what, before a shot?
 The most recent driver data  I saw was from January 2013, and he was averaging 255 yards.  He would have ranked dead-last on the PGA Tour last year, 15 yards behind Justin Leonard.
I mean, the fundamental flaw in Dan's Plan is that 10,000 is significantly less than what the touring pros are already doing.     Consider: the average, grinding professional on the PGA Tour plays probably 23 events in a season, and let's assume he makes 15 of those cuts.  This is roughly how much time he puts in each season:   15 Made Cuts x 6 rounds during the week (including pro-am + practice rounds) x 8-hours / day (playing time plus practice before / after round)...
I really admire this guy's perseverance, but I think it's pretty clear that he won't be able to make it out of the initial stages of Q-School, much less to the final days and on to the Web.com tour.  Heck, at this point he'd be hard-pressed to win a club championship, especially given what seem to be his blow-ups during competitive rounds.  For example, in August he placed 45th by going 87-80, finishing 24 shots off the winner.  In June, he played in a 3-day tournament and...
